More about The Tiger’s Tail
One of Dublin’s most successful businessmen finds himself shut out of his own life by a stranger who bears an uncanny resemblance in The Tiger’s Tail, debuting on DVD August 11 from MGM Home Entertainment. Filled with gripping suspense, The Tiger’s Tail weaves its way through newly affluent Ireland – from the wealthy environs of a nouveau riche real estate developer to the forgotten homeless left behind by the economic boom. Seeming to have the world in the palm of his hands – a beautiful wife, home and boat – Liam O’Leary crosses paths with his apparent double – a man no one seems to see. While O’Leary’s family and colleagues believe that stress at work is causing him to go crazy, a confrontation with the mystery man uncovers a shocking truth about his past and forces him to question his own identity. Written and directed by five-time Academy Award nominee John Boorman, The Tiger’s Tail features a stellar ensemble cast that includes Golden Globe nominee Brendan Gleeson (Best Supporting Actor, In Bruges), Golden Globe winner Kim Cattrall (Best Supporting Actress for Sex and the City), Ciaran Hinds (There Will Be Blood), Sinéad Cusack (Eastern Promises) and Seán McGinley (Gangs Of New York).
In a society divided by “haves” and “have nots,” wealthy Irish capitalist Liam O’Leary (Brendan Gleeson) has it all. But now, Liam is being stalked by a menacing look-alike, intent on stealing away everything he has: his job, his wife (Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall), and his sanity. As his perfect world comes crashing down, Liam must fight to stay alive and uncover the shocking secret of his shadowy past before it destroys him.
The Tiger’s Tail DVD release is presented in Wide Screen with English 5.1 Dolby Surround and English and Spanish subtitles.
